UK citizen marries non-EU citizen - any residency rights in Poland

OK,
Here's a hypothetical question.

If a UK citizen living in Poland marries a non-EU national, would they be able to live in Poland or must they return to the UK for 2 years first to gain the British residency?

Does anybody have any knowledge of this? Can you quote anything official or point to any information in English or Polish?

Thanks

PS. No, it's not for me and patrycia19 :)

best place to find that info is on the home office site.

They have lots about what rights are in the UK but nothing about other EU member states. I've found something on the EU site but it's all in legal-ese and hard to understand exactly. However, it did give me a form to ask, so we'll see...

If Poles can marry non-eu nationals and live in the UK then I would imagine the same applies for a UK national living in Poland and marrying a non-eu national.

I hope that makes sense :)

by the way it takes 3 years to qualify for nutralisation, the rules are changing all the time :)
